The Owner Says

Woodland walks, strolls through green fields and waterside wanders by rivers and the lake are all on offer here. Our family-friendly spot is a fab site to bring the kids to, especially if they’re avid nature fans. When you roll up at our green and grassy spot, you’ll be given a map and be left to explore and settle down wherever you please.

Our most popular spots come with firepits and you are also welcome to bring your own, we sell nets of recycled firewood on site so you can have that perfect camping experience roasting marshmellows as the sun goes down.

Well behaved dogs are also allowed to enjoy the space we have to offer, our farm dogs love cooling off in the river after a hot day!

The facilities on the main site are also available for wild campers.

There’s a dog-friendly pub, The Crooked Inn (01752 848177), a ten-minute drive away. For a Cornish Cream Tea or a proper English fry-up with a view head for the hills and the spectacularly located Louis Tea Rooms (01579 389223), in the Kit Hill Country Park which is eight miles away and nice for a walk. It also has a farm shop with Cornish produce for sale.

Proper wild camping experience

We loved our stay at Bush Farm. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. Recommended a good spot for us to put up our bell tent and we were the only ones there! Definitely felt like proper wild camping. Facilities are basic but clean and provide everything you need. It ended up raining a lot and the field got a little but muddy, so our van got stuck. The owner was kind enough to give us a lift to a local shop and at the end of our stay, tow us out of the field. You can't ask for much more than that! Beautiful space to explore and for our dog to run around off lead. The closest beach was very beautiful and not at all busy. We will definitely be back again.

Getting There

From Plymouth/Saltash direction head north on the A388 and turn left on to Leigh Lane, signposted for Pillaton and the Cornish Maize Maze. From the north this is a right turn. Follow Leigh Lane for a little over a mile, past the Cornish Maize Maze. Turn XX into the lane with the SR Training Sign and follow onto the farm. There will be a number of huts on the right – reception is signposted.

The closest railway station is at Saltash (six miles away) but to reach it most people will have to change at Plymouth Train Station (12 miles way). You can catch a Plymouth Bus from either station on the Plymouth-Callington route to get to the closest bus stop to site on the A338 junction with Leigh Lane. This is about a mile-and-a-half from site and the closest that public transport will get you.
